Patriots owner Robert Kraft issued a statement regarding his recent arrest for soliciting prostitution.
“In deference to the judicial system, I have remained silent these past several weeks. To correct some of the misinformation surrounding this matter, my attorney made his first public comments on Friday night. I would like to use this opportunity to say something that I have wanted to say for four weeks.
I am truly sorry. I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.
Throughout my life, I have always tried to do the right thing The last thing I would ever want to do is disrespect another human being. I have extraordinary respect for women; my morals and my soul were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as my partner for 50 years.
As I move forward, I hope to continue to use the platform with which I have been blessed to help others and to try to make a difference. I expect to be judged not by my words, but by my actions. And through those actions, I hope to regain your confidence and respect.”
William Burck, Kraft’s lawyer, said their team believes that police obtaining the video surveillance tape inside the spa was a violation of the fourth amendment, while the traffic stop to arrest Kraft was illegal.
“We’ve looked at…the law around the warrant for the video surveillance inside the spa, and we think it is a violation of the fourth amendment. We also believe the traffic stop [made by police as the men left the spa] was illegal and a violation of the constitution,” said Burck, via Emily Smith of the New York Post.
Burck added that Jupiter Police have “falsely connected” Kraft to a human trafficking case and the state attorney must examine the legality of Jupiter PD obtaining evidence.
“Sheriff Snyder and Jupiter police chief Daniel Kerr from the outset have said this is a human trafficking case, but have produced no evidence [to corroborate that]. They have falsely connected Robert Kraft and other men to human trafficking. Now they should correct the record. I have asked that the record be corrected and there’s been no response.
The state attorney should take a look how the evidence in this case was obtained by the police and explain how this evidence passes constitutional muster, because we don’t see it.”
